George William Horner (1849–1930), was a biblical scholar, an editor of the text of the New Testament in the dialects of the Coptic language.
In the Bohairic version, Horner edited in 4 volumes from 1898 to 1905. In the Sahidic version, he edited in 7 volumes from 1911 to 1924.
Another area of his interest was the liturgy of the Coptic and Ethiopic Church.
The text of the four Gospels, in the Bohairic edition, was established on the basis of Huntington MS 17; the Pauline epistles, Catholic epistles and the Acts of the Apostles on the basis of Oriental MS 424 and the Apocalypse, on Curzon MS 128.
